This is one of my favourites, it looks both polished and playful. The Hedda Jacket by Fremont.
The Tankus Double Breasted Coat in Beige. Love the cosy funnel neck and as an added bonus, it comes with arm warmers.

There's been a lot of buzz over at BoingBoing about the Rubitone cube. It's the latest in a bunch of Pantone themed conecpts I've seen recently, though none of them are likely to ever see commercial production. Not sure why Pantone doesn't buy up these ideas...I would poke myself in the eye to have an entire set of these Pantone badges. Poking oneself in the eye is an act of true courage, and I say this even as a regular contact lens user.
You can, however, buy these Pantone themed mugs for the design dork in your life. Or you could just drink everytime you read the word Pantone in this post. Ready? Pan.......................wait for it..........................................................................TONE!
I am tired and I would like very much to be tucked into bed, but I'll have to settle for falling asleep to a brand new sleep-time playlist. I especially like this song, 5 Years Time by Noah and The Whale. Maybe you know it? It's a love song, but it's very realistic all the same.
Tomorrow is the opening of the latest exhibition at The Anne and Gordon Samstag Museum of Art here in Adelaide, where I volunteer as a Collections Assistant. I'll probably be busy putting together cheese platters, though maybe this time I'll remember to take the wax off before serving them! Anyway, the exhibition features interactive art and textile design and I'm pretty excited to see it. If you haven't been before you should come just to see the beautiful building the museum's housed in.
That's the Hawke building, designed by the fantastic John Wardle of Melbourne.
Bed time for this weasel.
Ok, so at $400 AUD this isn't really a bargain but hot damn, that is a fine dress. (By Nicola Finetti) The auction ends in an hour but there doesn't seem to be any bidding activity and I'm confident it will be relisted. Buy it here.
Also digging this dress. I love anything with a huge scoop back, very understated yet sexy.
Available here but not for long! I expect a messy, bloody bidding war for this one.
Anyway, on to the first post of importance. I'm thrilled to hear that The Sartorialist may be getting a book deal, fingers crossed it comes out in time for my birthday next year! Though I'm pretty sure it's going to cost some serious bling. Ouch.
